A rally will be held on Saturday 2/7/2016 in Liverpool city centre by supporters wanting Jeremy Corbyn to remain Labour leader.

The event, set to be held from midday, on Paradise Street, is being advertised on social media under the strapline “Unite against the Tories. Defend Jeremy Corbyn.”

According to Newsnight, 90% of Labour Constituency Labour Parties are backing Corbyn and are angry at the Labour MPs.

I hope the tories have got loads of vacancies for all these right wing and career MPs.

Joint trade union statement on the Labour Party

For immediate use: Wednesday 29 June 2016

The current crisis within the Parliamentary Labour Party is deeply regrettable and unnecessary. Last week’s vote to leave the European Union presents the entire labour movement with unprecedented challenges. Above all, we need to be fighting to preserve our members’ jobs, already under threat in several industries and across the public sector as a consequence. The government is in crisis, but already serious debates are taking place and decisions being made which profoundly affect the interests of working people.
Under these circumstances, our members and millions of others will be looking with dismay at the events in parliament. It cannot be right to seek to denude the Labour front bench at this time, when the government more than ever needs to be scrutinised and held to account by an effective and united opposition that does the job it is paid to do
Jeremy Corbyn is the democratically-elected Leader of our Party who secured such a resounding mandate less than ten months ago under an electoral procedure fully supported by Labour MPs. His position cannot and should not be challenged except through the proper democratic procedures provided for in the Party’s constitution. We urge all Labour MPs to abide by those procedures, and to respect the authority of the Party’s Leader.
While we have stated that we believe a Leadership election would be an unwelcome distraction at this time of crisis, if one nevertheless occurs through the proper procedures we would expect all parts of the Party to honour the result and pull together in the interests of the country, and working people in particular. The only party that can win for working people is a strong and united Labour Party.

I think Angela Eagle might be off to the Job Centre soon. As a Wallasey Labour Party member, Jeremy Corbyn has my full support. Much better than all these Blairite throwbacks. Angela doesn't give a toss about Wallasey. And I think the feeling is probably mutual!

Anti-Corbyn MPs investigate party name ownership

Any suggestions for a new name for them if they do decide eventually to break away as a new party?

In the 80s you attempted to get rid of Frank Field but in those days your banner read Militant Tendency and N Kinnock kicked you all out of the Labour Party.

Why does Angela keep promising to mount a leadership bid, and then backing down at the last moment?

My theory is that they still hope Jeremy will back down and 'do the decent thing'. I don't believe he should or will. Let Ms Eagle stand against him and lose. There is every chance she will also lose her seat if she does, and the whole thing is a bluff on her part.

The right thing is for the rebel MPs to stand down as MP's and perhaps better and more loyal candidates can be chosen and voted in.

Labour/Socialism/democracy has been internally attacked from the left and now is being internally attacked from the right but we will survive never mind what is thrown at us.

I think she is waiting to see how much support the Corbyn rallies indicate (I've booked my flagstone and ordered my Breton hat).

I also think she thought Unity would accept her as a candidate and may have been put straight on this.

I would have thought that 60,000 people joining the party in the last week would have had some effect on the decision.

It is the nightmare scenario for the PLP; a takeover by the people! What they think it need now to stop it is for someone to stand against him, knowing that this is an act of personal political suicide. So far they have a couple of sacrificial lambs teetering on the cliff edge politely saying "After you" to each other but no jumpers.
